The likelihood of my using this is probably pretty slim. This is one of the field test models the CHO sent out last year so it has a few unique issues. The original ropes are long since gone, but they were not trustworthy anyway. This has never really been stressed and has been used very little. Mostly as a secondary bird dropping cover while I was tweaking my bridges on the outside stand.
Asking price of $50 shipped to CONUS.
All Terrain Hybrid Hammock by Grand Trunk (then Travel Hammock)
I just finished putting some amsteel blue in the channels. I am not going to use this.
Price lowered... $35. +shipping.
By now most people are aware of my inability to get out of a gathered end top loader. This beastie almost threw me when I had it up a bit ago. So I won't be using it as a hammock. I have three camping tarps now. Two HH Hex one midified for winter and one for 3 season. One DIY cat. So I don't need it as a tarp. It holds my weight fine and is in good condition. It needs to be loved, cherished and used rather than sit in my gear pile being dejected.
I was hoping to get some money to finance my trip to MAHHA.... but since that seems unlikely I have a new deal....
I don't want to lose any money on this, which I think is a reasonable expectation so here's the plan...
I am willing to _give_ this to someone for the cost of shipping. Now the fine print strings.....
It needs to be someone involved in scouting, or youth group ministry so that the hammock will be used as such. Alternatively, a money strapped newbie looking for a first hammock. If you are going to add it to your collection or use it as a truck tarp please don't request it.
This has a comfortable lie. No bug net is provided. No tarp is provided. National Hardware welded steel rings factory SWL rated at 300# are included on the amsteel blue hammock suspension line. No suspension straps or slap traps are provided.
If you qualify for this offer send me your email address and zipcode so I can figure shipping accurately. Include a brief explanation of why you are requesting it. I will take requests through Noon Eastern time 4/9/09 and then, if multiple requests have been received I'll decide which one I will go with.
There's the deal. If it somehow offends you... so be it. Spare me the flack. If it works for you, the let me know what you will be doing with it. This is NOT a first come..first gets. It is a "worthy cause" by my choice.
If I don't get any response to this offer.. I'll keep it and figure it will come in handy someday.
This offer is closed. The hammock will be sent off to Indiana to begin its new life in the midwest with scouts.
